2012 Motovun Film Festival

Preperations are starting for the 2012 Motovun Film Festival.  There is an unconfirmed date July 25 – 29 2012.  Watch this space for confirmation of this most exciting event held in one of Istria’s (Croatia) most breathtakingly beautiful medieval town, Motovun.
Small town, small productions, and small budgets combine for a grand display of the independent cinematic excellence. The Motovun Film Festival, nestled in idyllic Istria, launched in 1999 to provide a much-needed venue for non-Hollywood cinema. Today the independent spirit lives on during this five-day film marathon, with evening outdoor screenings and daily screenings in local theatres. The Festival program consists of around 70 titles from all over the world, from documentaries to feature films, from shorts to long forms, from guerrilla made films to co-productions. The “From A to A” award recognises outstanding works originating from countries between Austria and Albania. No need to worry if your “production” budget is likewise small because Motovun opens an Eco Camp-ground where film fanatics set up tent cities giving Motovun the unofficial title of Film Woodstock.
